Recipes for Pizza - Week 4 January 2013
This sauce is really, really good in our opinions; we like it better than cooked sauces. For toppings, we like ham, black olives and onions or pepperoni, red and green peppers, and onions. Sometimes I spread a little cheese on the crust first, then spread/spoon the sauce on before adding toppings.
Simple No Cook Pizza Sauce
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
1 tsp dry oregano
1/2 tsp dry marjoram
1/2 tsp dry basil
1/4 tsp garlic salt
Combine and let sit on the countertop for at least 1 hour while the dough rises, if making homemade crust. I usually purchase a ready-made pizza crust.
For Each Pizza:
Preheat oven to 420-450F. Spoon 1/3 cup sauce on dough and spread to within 1" of edge. Distribute a few handfuls of shredded mozzarella cheese (I use a little cheddar, too) on sauce, then add whatever other toppings you want.
